Android losing ground to iOS for second consecutive period in the US, says comScore
0. phoneArena 05 Apr 2013, 02:12 posted on
Now comScore reports Apple is at 38.9% already, for the sake of Android, which went from 53.7% to 51.7%, but is still the commanding mobile OS platform in the US. Of course, the flagship phones from Sony, HTC, Samsung and LG are just starting to roll out this season, so the little green robot is sure to regain some ground until Apple releases its sixth iPhone generation in the summer...

Apple needs to hit one out of the park with ios7 before any real ground is lost by android. If apple shocks us with new hardware/software, then the landscape will be shaken up.

Agreed, but not really sure it's going to happen. Like they did with Siri, iMusic (iRadio, iWhateveryoucallit) will be their big selling point that they will throw all their focus and attention at.
I'm more curious to see what iOS7 will be. I'm guessing it will have a universal appearance across areas of the OS. Have to think that's a good thing. Hopefully they'll do something about how icons are displayed, never really understood having them displayed across multiple screens. People like me who have around 150 apps or more, it's gotta be difficult to find things or constantly shuffle them around to keep them organized (not a big fan of folders).

There are more people loving enjoying freedom than being in Kindergarten™
So you prefer restrictions™
23. xperiaDROID (Posts: 5150; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
I don't prefer "restrictions" (iOS)
I love to enjoy "freedom" (Android)
And "Kindergarten"(iOS) is WRONG!
iOS is just boring, but easy to use!
And I'm telling the truth, Android is not gonna win forever........

Actually both WP and iOs is just too simple thats why most of the people found it boring. Well its up to the choice. iOS is still on number 2 in OS.
26. xperiaDROID (Posts: 5150; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
Well, WP is not boring to me, I like the "Live Tiles".
Even though iOS is still on number 2, it was still the most boring OS i have ever seen. What Apple needs to do is completely redesign their OS.
29. TheBitterTruth (unregistered)
They are actualy redesigning.
